's in an environment where israel as well as many u s lawmakers don't think that iraq should develop nuclear technology at all. the obama administration had to gauge the diplomatic acrobatics to both acknowledge he runs right to peaceful nuclear energy and not acknowledge it at the same time. we approach these negotiations with a basic understanding. iran like any nation should be able to access peaceful nuclear energy. but because of its record of violating its obligations. iran must accept strict limitations on its nuclear programs that make it impossible to develop a nuclear weapon. the scope and role of iran's enrichment as is set forth in the language within this document says that iran's peaceful nuclear program is subject to a negotiation and to mutual agreement. despite the officials attempts to appease the hawks with punches are flying here looks like we tacitly agreed that they will be enriching for commercial purposes down the road so i think you gonna say on capitol hill again a bipartisan effort to try to make sure that this is not the falling rain. another set of marco rubio call that dea

and it is difficult always to sell a company. in this environment, even harder. >> hang on. clearly, cerberus has some obligations to investors like callister's. and it has many other partners who are counting on cerberus to generate an adequate return on its investments. but if it comes out and said, we are going to sell this thing, it sounds as though they are going to get rid of it, which is to say not necessarily selling it at the best price. have a simply not been able to find a buyer at any price? or are they trying to maximize the return and get out of this? which to me, in the scam and the environment, might make it a bit of a tough sale. it a bit ofght make a tough sale in this environment. >> you hit the head on the nail. i have lots of investors. they are trying to do the right thing, which is to liquidate the company, but they have to do it for the right price and find the right buyer. they have found some people very interested in the company. but in this industry, this is a fairly big company. tois not an easy company liquidate. >> what if they cannot sell? will you pull out your money?

environment and what gives us the wonderful physical diversity we see in a roomful of people like this. although mutations can cause disease they also allow us to adapt and we should be thankful for them. the natural question that comes up in this context is how much do we differ? at these mutations are happening every time we produce how much variation is there among humans? if we look at identical twins these are nature's clones. identical twins differ at essentially zero dna aces. it's not quite true but it's close enough. they are identical at the dna level. if we look at unrelated humans do i have any guesses as to how much an unrelated pair of humans differs at the dna level black swan and what? well it's not very much. one and 1000. at the dna level this most fundamental unit of our biology, we are 99.9% identical. there's an important message right there. if we compare ourselves to our nearest biological relative to champ we are 99% identical to the gym. this is for dna sequences that we can line up and compare. we compare ourselves to the mouse we differ at about a sixth to a

environments. in other words, the lone wolf terrorist do not inherit from other states. they are a part of our society and subjects of the political and economic ideology and religious environments. in other words, many of them share values through the technology through the website and so forth. some operate on one basis of a single attack and some operate on multiple attacks. there were a number of studies that were developed over the years that we are trying to follow on a daily basis and i think that it requires a great deal of interest in terms of radicalization and international society tries to understand what can be done to deal with it. so ultimately the discussion would provide i think the initial context for the discussion and the first speaker as i mentioned is spike bowman who has a very rich background in the government and in the academic community and taking one course now sco w. and one for the interns he is a student in the class so to be paired with a class tomorrow. i think of spike is a very broad experience in the government and counterintelligence, and also various posit

. we know that this environment is ripe. there's also the expected growth of 30% per year for the next three years. one of the things that we did at sink or swim is that we were at the forefront of the technology area for online trading. we have been at the forefront of the content era, really. the amount of content that gets consumed through video every year is enormous. we need to make sure that the content is relevant and entertaining. but what is important is to make sure that the technology that is provided is pushing the content to the customer or has the ability to curate the content to make sure it is organized and easy to find. on top of that, make sure that video or that data is all on demand. they want it now. they expect it. the younger demographic expects that it is all easy access wherever they are. also, that it is free and shareable. thinking beyond mobile access to your bank account, taking it one step further, something that is simple. something that brokerage firms do today. you can get your debit card. you can write checks. you have access to more options. it is rea
